Zanzibar & South Africa

– New Years Eve – Welcoming 2025 in Africa –

Away to Africa’s New Years tour to South Africa and Zanzibar offers the best of both worlds as you enjoy the amazing backdrop of the Table Mountain in Cape Town, skyline and culture of Johannesburg, and pristine blue ocean of East Africa.

You will start your tour in Cape Town, one of the most beautiful cities in the world which is a melting pot of cultures, rich historical and cultural heritage, and pristine white beaches that sweep along its coastline. The city is vibrant and cosmopolitan offering excellent hotels, restaurants and nightlife. Slightly further afield, are the many South African Wine Estates that offer historic, unrivaled natural beauty and some of the best wine tasting in the world.

Johannesburg is the place to go to mix big-city culture, shopping, dining and nightlife with outdoor adventures, up-close wildlife encounters and visits to historical sites. Explore caves and nature reserves, or learn the history of Apartheid, then enjoy dinner at a hip cafe or five-star restaurant. And if you’re a shopper, bring an extra, empty suitcase. With malls, open-air markets and places that blend the two, you’ll find plenty of unique souvenirs.

End your tour in Zanzibar, an archipelago, located in the Indian Ocean 15 miles off the coast of Tanzania, which is a breathtaking spot to escape from the world. You’ll enjoy clear, turquoise-blue water; shallow sandbars perfect for wading; and many small, nearly deserted islands virtually unvisited by tourists. Explore the World Heritage Site of Stone Town, Zanzibar City’s old quarter. Or just go beach to beach between tiny fishing villages—each one’s better than the next.
Usher in the New Year dancing the night away to welcome in 2025!
